Joaquin Phoenix Hits Fire Fighter Truck in Car Accident

The 'Joker' actor crashed his Tesla into a parked truck owned by Los Angeles County Fire Department in a recent fender bender in West Hollywood, California.

AceShowbiz - Joaquin Phoenix reportedly bumped his car into an unoccupied Los Angeles County Fire Department truck on Tuesday, October 8.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ the Joker actor was making a right turn out of a parking lot in West Hollywood, California when he misjudged the distance between his own car and the vehicle, causing his Tesla to scrape the bumper.

The star's car apparently fared worse in the bump, with sources reporting damage to the right front quarter panel. However, the paramedics' truck only had a minor scratch on the bumper.

Owning up to the accident, Joaquin pulled over his vehicle and found the paramedics, who were on a call, and explained what happened. Police were called, and everyone exchanged insurance information.

A damage report was also taken because L.A. County property was damaged.

Joaquin apparently complied with the officers' investigation and he didn't receive a ticket for the incident.
